  1. The past couple days I got some decent studying done. I'm not getting to bed as early as I probably should. I'll have to focus on being in bed by 11pm. The school style routine kinda went out the window when I started doing practice exams. I need to make a two week plan of where I want to be in terms of my exam study, that'll put how much work I need to do into perspective. I haven't been exercising every mornung, but I'm starting to incorporate running into my study schedule to keep focussed.
  2. Today has been a useless day in terms of studying, but it wasn't bad overall. I took a friend to the supermarket and went to go print some wallpapers for the flat, which I've been meaning to do for a while. I then studied for about 2-3 hours before heading to the gym for a really decent workout. I then went to support a friend at a comedy play they were part of. I didn't get anywhere near as much study done as I needed to, so tomorrow I;m going to restart my self-disciplined school-style study routine where I stick to the schedule I would have had at high school. This worked for me in my
  3. Hi again friends! I'm just about halfway through my second year of university now, and things are going alright academically. I'm still working out which has been good out of that, but I'm facing the issue again that I'm not growing as a person and am lacking clear direction. I'm happiest when I feel I'm consistently working towards a meaningful goal and challenging myself. Lately I've been sticking inside my comfort zone a lot, which isn't good at all. First things I wish to change: I want to be exercising every morning, improve on my sleeping habits, phone usage, study more effect
  4. Thank you Cam for your continuous and tireless support for myself and all the other game quitters. I've become a much better person with your guidance?
  5. Thanks Hitaru! I hope you end up great places as well.
  6. It's been a while! I think I'll make a post here for some self reflection and forever wishes to look. My holidays have been going relatively well, I've been working hard to earn money, keeping fit, and I've made sure to catch up with friends. I certainly could see more friends I haven't seen in a while, but I'm relatively happy with how I've spent my time. I have been gaming for a few months now and it has been good. I managed tk keep it at a healthy level and only play a couple times a week, and sometimes not at all during the week. It has been a great journey on Game Quitters, and
  7. Nice! I wouldnt expect you to come here just for the run. What length of run are you wanting to do? Message me pls
  8. Quick update: Sunday went well without games, and I haven't gamed since then. I spent more time with my brothers and did some reading. I've come to realise the nature of my relationship with games, and it simply reflects how I gamed before I quit. I was not addicted to games as I find it manageable to simply not play any, but I just played a lot when I have nothing better to do and no urgent tasks that need doing. I may also be naturally drawn to fantasy types of things as I find it fun to play tabletop games such as Magic the Gathering and Dungeons and Dragons. Even the books I love most are
  9. This looks great! I'll definitely ask around. Were you coming to NZ for it or something?
  10. Exams are over. They have been for some two weeks now! A lot of change has happened in the meantime. When my holidays started I spent a lot of time reading and I made sure to go to the gym the normal amount. I spent a decent amount of time with my girlfriend. I started to do some full-time construction work to fill in my time, whilst also doing my part-time job. For the better or worse, I started gaming again. I believe it came of running out of interesting books and I then wanted something fun and easy to fill my time, so I grabbed the lowest hanging fruit. I'm sure there are many more underl
  11. Last week has been an ok week in terms of productivity. During the uni days I went to the gym twice which was not ideal, but I made decent use of my time and ensured that I met my deadlines. In the weekend I had a couple dilemmas and effected my ability to study somewhat, I didn't get much work done as a result. This week I need to give my coursework and studying full priority, even cutting down on gym time if necessary to meet the exams as prepared as I can be.
  12. Last week has been intense! I had another two tests and managed to get through the week well. I've been trying to achieve my highest during the tests, but in doing so I have been slightly behind in lectures. I'm pretty much caught up now though. I need to make sure I do these reflections on a Sunday, as I otherwise forget until I can hardly remember what I did during that week. I worked plenty of hours for my jobs, it is getting to be a lot to juggle though. I didn't spend very much time with my uni friends and instead spent a lot with my girlfriend. Its not a bad choice, but I need to be aw
  13. I'm glad you enjoy it haha. Thanks for letting me know
  14. @Cam Adair Will the meetup be on the 14th in Sydney near the same time as the show? I'm looking to buy flights right now.
  15. Last week has been another blast of busyness. I did well to arrange my week days so that I didn’t have any clashes, but I made a couple of poor choices in how I spent my time during the week. I spend a little too much time with my girlfriend when I should have been studying or going to robotics, and I believe I’ve learned from those experiences. I need to keep my sleeping and studying routine consistent throughout the weekend during these important exam times, as it really messes me up when I stay up too late and get up too late. In general it has been a good and very busy week, and I know t
